Item description for Twisted Confessions: The True Story Behind the Kitty Genovese and Barbara Kralik Murder Trials by Charles E. Skoller...

In the early 1960s, the quiet borough of Queens was rocked by the violent and brutal murders of Barbara Kralik, Annie Mae Johnson, and Kitty Genovese. These murders shocked not only Queens and New York, but the entire nation, especially when newspapers disclosed Kitty's neighbors heard her screams and looked on without calling the police.

Two suspects were apprehended and indicted, Winston Moseley for the Genovese murder and Alvin Mitchell for the Kralik murder. Before the trials, Moseley claimed to have committed the Kralik and Johnson murders as well, not taken seriously by the police and DA until Moseley disclosed details only the actual killer could have known. Charles E. Skoller, the young prosecutor assigned to these trials was then faced with a prosecutor's nightmare. In Twisted Confessions, he details the murders and relives his investigations and trials that followed in the almost impossible task of revealing and convicting the actual killer.

Reviews - What do customers think about Twisted Confessions: The True Story Behind the Kitty Genovese and Barbara Kralik Murder Trials?

Murder Mystery  Jul 3, 2008
Charles Skoller's story reads like a murder mystery. A relentless DA pursues and eventually convicts the murderer in second trial. "Law and Order" couldn't have done a better job. Kudos to Mr. Skoller for his story and his conviction of the killer of Barbara Kralik.

Outstanding!  Jun 11, 2008
As a trial lawyer with 40 years of court experience, I can truly say that Twisted Confessions is one of the most exciting and legally accurate true tales to come along for many years. Mr. Skoller's narration of the actual criminal trials of two confessed murderers and strategies employed therein make it seem like the reader is a part of the entire courtroom drama. I highly recommend this book . The reader will not be able to put it down until it is finished.

" Twisted Confessions" reads like a novel but is the true story of two crimes linked together-two men confessed to the same murder. The Kitty Genovese death was reported country wide- timid, negligent neighbors did not alert anyone to her death screams. The Barbara Kralik killing had
Kitty's killer confessing subsequent to someone else also admitting guilt.
The author weaves these two crimes so that even though you might suspect the outcome you're still anxious to get to the next page.
Skoller is a dedicated professional whose concern for the victims' families is balanced with his hand on "LADY JUSTICE".
This book should be required reading for aspiring law students AND those already admitted to practice. "True Confessions" shows the system works and Charles Skoller is the "turn key".
Twisted Confessions A great read!!!  May 29, 2008
I could not put this engrossing true mystery down and was delighted to read it in just 2 days. It tells a very important story of a DA's search for justice in the face of conflicting confessions involving the widely publicized murders of a young woman and a young girl in NYC in the 1960's. An excellent book well worth reading and more enthralling than current detective fiction. Many of us remember the horrific controversy over the terrible public murder of the young woman Kitty Genovese heard and seen by over 30 neighbors who did nothing to report it or attempt to aid the victim. This is the true tale of the prosecutions which followed.Do buy it and read it.
